Our graduation this June will mark all too quickly the end of our adolescence. We have learned
what life is all about--its joys, its sorrows. We know pretty much what is expected of us and what we
can do. We are no longer children living in worlds of dreams and fantasy, for we want to be grown up
and on our own.
In the next few years we will discover how well we have prepared ourselves for the world we thought
we knew so much about. For the first time we will have to defend ourselves in every sense of the word,
since we are now responsible for our own destinies. There will be no more compulsory attendance at
school. No one will look after us to tell us what to do and when to do it. For the greater part of our
lives, we have been instructed in the ways of life and now our test has come. Whether we sink or swim,
blossom or shrivel up and die, be polished up or worn down by the grindstone of life, this will be decided
in the next few years.
If one teacher is more responsible for our knowledge
of manners and speech than any other teacher, it is Mrs.
Thomas. Along with the parts of speech and vocabulary
words she has shown us the meaning of patience by her
patience, forebearance, by her forebearance. Mrs.
Thomas has inspired us with a regard for greater learn-
ing by her own knowledge.
The class of 1960 will carry with it always the rec-
ollection of this lady of dignity and poise. We thank
her for her quiet understanding of us in our years of grow-
ing up. And so we leave this expression of high esteem- -
the dedication of the 1960 Tattler to Mrs. Thomas.
For several years now the walls of Williamsburg High
School have resounded with the voice of Earl Tonet. We
have become accustomed to such highly audible orders
as, "Now get out there and PLAY BASKETBALL! "
His excited performances from the sidelines at bas-
ketball games have always added to the entertainment.
We thank him for inspiring us with the will to win.
With tremulous recollection we will always be stirred
by such phrases as, "En francais, S'lL VOUS PLALT! " or
Our respect for him, for his tireless effort in our be-
half, for his stern discipline when it was needed, and for
his friendship is sincerely expressed by this dedication
of the class of 1960 to Mr. Earl Tonet.

History of the Class of 1 960
To the faculty at Williamsburg High School, it must seem like a million years, but it was only four short years
ago in September, 1956, that forty self-conscious, scared, members of "THAT Class of 1960" began their freshman
year. (If the faculty knew then what was in store for them, I'm sure many would have resigned.) The outstanding
event of that year, as always, was Freshman Reception. In spite of the ridiculous costumes and stunts the seniors
demanded, we did manage to survive and have a wonderful time, too. As we became better acquainted with our
fellow classmates, we chose the following officers: President, Wilfred Samson; Vice-President, Stanley Gromelski;
Secretary, Susan Senecal; Treasurer, Virginia Johnson; and Historian, Susan Gorham.
When we returned as sophomores the next September of 1957, our class numbered thirty -two, having lost Susan
Gorham, Susan Ballway, Betty Greene, Mary Jane and Geraldine Sanger, Carol McDonald, Muralee McCarthy and
Robert Clifford, but gained Judy Hilliker, Reed Boisjolie and Bill MacAvoy. Our class ballots that year resulted in
the following officers who also guided us well: President, Barbara Pollen; Vice-President, John Munroe; Secretary,
Kathy Walsh; Treasurer, Susan Senecal; and Historian, Marilyn Boucher. Our class treasury being non-existent, we
sponsored a very successful food sale that year, realizing one hundred dollars, half of which was given to the Library
Club Book Fund, thereby squelching some rumors to the effect that our class seemed not to be too interested in
Having survived final June exams, thirty-five members of the Junior Class returned in September, 1958. Sad to
relate, that year, most people when referring to us, usually groaned "THAT Junior Class." (It seems our habit of
putting off things until the last moment proved very frustrating to the faculty. However, one of our faculty mem-
bers was later heard to concede, "They ALWAYS come through!") So perhaps we were not so bad after all. One
thing we didn't put off was the election of officers, with the following results: President, Stanley Gromelski; Vice-
President, John Munroe; Secretary, William Munroe; Treasurer, Reed Boisjolie and Historian, Mary Jean Breguet.
That year we lost Judy Hilliker, Tina Laughton and Tim Mosher, but gained Joe Kosior, Pat Morrey, and Janice
Miller. We added to our treasury by sponsoring a very successful "Sock Hop," but the main social event of the
year was the Prom. The theme we chose was a "New England Garden." We were very proud to have two juniors,
Sue Senecal and Virginia Johnson, included with seniors Andrea Culver and Judy Breguet in the court of Queen
Seniors- -numbering thirty-six, we filed into Room 6 in much different fashion from the way we had three years
previously. Once again the number of the class was balanced— by the loss of Reed Boisjolie and Jan Miller and
ithe gain of Fran O'Donnell and Yin Lim Yook. Realizing this was our last year, most of us resolved secretly to
"grow-up" and add more dignity to our class reputation. Our Senior Class officers were as follows: President, Betty
Sherk; Vice-President, John Munroe; Secretary, Martha Morrey; Treasurer, Joe Kosior; and Historian, Mary Jean
Breguet. This year at Freshman Reception, as in other years, the freshmen amused us all with their many talents.
The semi -formal dance held during the Christmas holidays was very successful socially but not financially, as we
lost forty dollars. We are looking forward to our last Prom which we know from past experience, will be a success in
As graduation gets closer for this Class of 1960, I hope the future history, too, of each and every member of
"THAT" Senior Class" manages to "come through" in Life as successfully as it did back at good old Burgy.
Prophecy of Class of 1 960
It was a pleasant May afternoon in 1980, and I was in New York City on business. I'd been enjoying the day in
Central Park and then was strolling down Fifth Avenue when I spied a rather familiar face.
"Kathy Walsh, is that really you? What are you doing in the big city?"
"Well, Rick Wittshirk, I'll be darned! I've just come from a reception at the Commodore. You must remem-
ber Sue Senecal, our class man-hater? Sue finally relented and was married this afternoon to a wealthy Texas oil-
man. I saw lots of our old classmates there."
"Say, Kathy, speaking of Sue, I'm reminded of Bruce Mack, who joined the Marines after graduation. Bruce in-
vested his savings in common stocks and soon made a fortune. I visited Bruce just yesterday in Brooklyn, where he
lives the life of a typical executive with his wife and five children. You know, Timo Moynahan also enlisted after
school but decided to make a career of the Marines, and is Master Sergeant at an overseas training base."
"I was talking to Barbara Pollen, who was Matron of Honor at the wedding. Barbara at first planned on a teach-
ing career, but fell from this field into that of art advertising. She now has a column in the NEW YORK TIMES
which is faithfully followed by all lovers of art. Recently at a world-wide art festival, she and her husband noticed
one of the best pieces of expressive art they'd ever seen. Looking closely at the name, Barbara discovered it to be
that of Linda Morton. It seems Linda had lived in Greenwich Village with her Beatnik husband for fifteen years,
studying the methods of painters until she developed a style all her own. "
"I happen to know Bob Mason made his fortune in small town poker games and opened a casino in Las Vegas.
Recently, Bob tired of gambling and took up forestry, as had been his plan in high school. He is now a respected
member of the National Wildlife Bureau, indulging only occasionally in a game of Old Maid with his family.
"A couple of years ago I saw Richard Ames, a really "wild child" of the senior class. He settled down to con-
tinue working on the Clary Snow farm until he had saved enough to go into farming on his own. Rich became very
much interested in cross breeding, and after years of tedious experimentation, succeeded in producing an interesting
new domestic breed, the doat. This animal, a cross between the dog and goat, may be seen now in many homes,
and is hailed as the Ames doat.
"After high school, Martha Morrey worked as a secretary in Northampton. Then Marty got a position in Florida
and became involved in segregation problems. She is now headed for the Anti-Racial Discrimination Committee.
"I see Joannie Robbins every once in a while. Joan worked for two years and became married to her high
school boy friend, who is owner of Hillside Orchards and Dewey's Cider Mill. They now have a very thriving
business, the best in that area."
"Excuse me, Ricky, but do you remember Bill MacAvoy? We hear a lot of him these days. You must recall
reading in the paper--Bill was one of the ten unfortunate men on the first ship to Venus, which was unable to re-
turn. However, Bill and his crew recently made radio contact with Earth, and he is reportedly living happily there
with his harem of Venusian wives.
"Will Samson, our class fun lover, has opened us the perfect haven for teenagers in place of the old Snack Bar.
It is a combination Snack Bar and recreation center which features all sorts of exotic entertainment. He always
wanted something like it when he was young.
"Ed O'Brien, my old buddy, made quite a success of his life. After leaving Williamsburg, he took his fast car
and winning ways out to Pasadena, California, where he opened his own barber shop. With his out-going personality,
Ed managed to make quite a few connections and is now a toupee maker for Hollywood stars."
"Rick, I saw Nancy Dufresne at the wedding. Nancy's story is an interesting one . . . Nancy got married to her
secret admirer two years after graduation. She and her husband, both avid music lovers, now have their own radio
show which features a combination of rock 'n' roll, Western music, and modern jazz. This style music has become
the popular fad that's sweeping the country. Nancy told me that Pat Lyons had had quite a time for herself. After
trying all sorts of careers, Pat went to Italy "just for kicks." There she studied voice under European masters for ten
years, having always loved singing, and now has a lifetime contract with the Metropolitan Opera.
"I was told that Dave Healy planned on attending Sue's wedding, but at the last moment was called away to
settle a boundary dispute. Dave attended an engineering school and took four more years of post graduate work after
graduation. Dave is now a government survey er. using his spare time to tutor algebra students.
"Do you get channel 37, station WWBW on your T.V., Ricky? If you do, you must have watched W. R. Munroe,
the singing news commentator. Bill, who is known by all as W. R. now, used his gift of gab and singing ability to
get a job with a small radio station. Years of hard work got Bill his position with WWBW as the best-loved news
man on the air. If you've never watched his program. I'm sure you'll enjoy his news and singing- -something dif-
ferent in this day and age."
"Stanley Gromelski still lives in Haydenville, so I see him quite often. Stan was always interested in math and
science at school; therefore it's not surprising that he took up studying space ships and rockets. I'm proud to say
Stan helped engineer one of the first passenger ships to the moon. His spare time is spent in underwater basket
weaving, which has always fascinated him.
"After her exciting high school years, Ginny Johnson decided to go to Secretarial School. Showing outstanding
ability she was given a position with a congressman, now holding a well-paying, much envied position as secre-
tary Bing Munroe. Bing went to a western agricultural school and is now in Washington trying to find the ever
elusive solution to the farm problem. Every once in a while Bing returns to Burgy to visit old friends, and we see him
driving around in his official Congressman's car."
"At the wedding I found out what had become of Diana Damon. We all know how much Diney loved French.
Therefore you won't be surprised to learn that Diney, after becoming, a full-fledged nurse, took seven more years of
French and is now head of a French hospital in Algiers.
"Beverly Ramstrom became an oceanologist and established a Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Marine
Life. It was because of her work in this field that the lost city of Atlantis was found and raised to the surface. Betty
Shefk, after graduation cum laude from Smith, became one of the country's foremost atomic physicists. Betty,
also a brilliant explorer of land bound phenomena in her spare time, played a part in unearthing Atlantis. Bev and
Betty together make an unbeatable pair of scientific explorers. However, I do wonder how Betty manages so much,
seeing that she has eleven delightful children. Oh well, Betty always seemed quite apt at handling many things at
"Kathy, I was up in Williamsburg the other day and I stopped in at Joe Kosior' s Wine Emporium. I saw Joe
behind the counter and asked how everything was. Apparently Joe had read many books on wine making in the
French hills and had gotten some new ideas for his large vineyard on Petticoat Hill. He exports his Kosior Wine
"Pat Morrey is off on vacation with her husband and family right now. After working in New York for half a
year after graduation, Pat returned home and was married to her high school steady. They now have a lovely home
in Williamsburg, and Pat teaches Sunday School as one of her outside activities.
"Paulette LaPalm went to teachers' college and is now giving her class of second graders all the skills and
knowledge needed to blaze a path in the world. Summers Paulette travels all over to talk with other teachers,
trying to learn better methods of teaching. "
"That must be about everyone, isn't it, Ricky? Neither of us mentioned Marilyn Boucher yet. Right after
graduation from Williamsburg High School, Marilyn was married at a ceremony most of us attended. She is now
living happily with her handsome Air Force husband, who has become a lieutenant, spending much of his time on
the move. The last word is that they are now in Mesopotamia.
"Oh, yes. I saw Pearl Adams after the reception; she hasn't changed a bit. Pearl's love of fast horses was
well-known. After graduating from agricultural school, she moved to Indiana and started a horse drag strip. Out
there, Pearl met a fan of fast cars and together they started the first horse-stock car coordinated drag strip."
"I keep in touch with Jeannie Breguet, who has really surprised everyone, including herself. After successful
years as a teacher, Jeannie became interested in acting and is at present that well-known actress we hear so much
about, Boobala LaVerne.
"I hardly recognized Betsy Snow at the wedding, but after I got used to her boyish short hair cut, we got to talk-
ing. Betsy, after graduating from a Colorado college, made herself well-known by editing a book for teen-age girls
entitled "THE PERFECT BOY. She then became a hermit, which had been her fondest desire throughout high school.
However, after two years of hermit life, Betsy grew lonely and returned to Massachusetts. She is now happily set-
tled on a large dairy farm. Betsy told me that Fran O'Donnell, one of the school's well-remembered athletes, at-

Well, we've made it up one more rung and we're Juniors now, and along with the privileges of our
position (such as heckling underclassmen), we have inherited all the problems of our predecessors:
namely the wild scramble to get enough credits to graduate, or to get the proper background for the
college of our choice along with the sudden realization that there are other things to do besides go to
Our class needed someone to keep our affairs in order, so we elected our class officers; President,
Susan Clark; Vice president, Bill Ames; Secretary, Linda Beals; Treasurer, David Braman; Historian,

Sophomore Class History
The sophomore class of 1962 entered into its second year of high school life feeling much more se-
cure and at ease. We lost four of our classmates: Sandra Bond, Linda Elmes, Jacqueline Terrill, and
Mary Lou Johndrow. However, we gained two new ones: Susan Arel and Neal Dewey. We elected class
officers as follows: Neal Menard, President; Ricky Graves, Vice-president; James Outhuse, Secretary;
Gail Mougin, Treasurer; and Joanne Brooks, Historian. To the Student Council we elected Cecil Tho-
mas, Andy Burr, and Paul Healy.
During the course of the year we held two dances, a Valentine dance in February, and one in May.
As a special project we sold green and white pens with Williamsburg High School printed on them. The
profit netted from these sales was donated to the school library.
Our sophomore year has gone by much faster than our freshman year leaving us with many mem-
ories. We hope the years to come will be as happy.

Freshman Class History
In September, 1959, the large class of 1963 started its first year of high school. At our first class
meeting we elected the following officers: President, Barbara Mollison; Vice-president, Linda La-
valle; Secretary, Alicia DeNood; Treasurer, Linda Sarafin. To the Student Council we elected Michael
Donovan and Naomi Curtis.
The Freshman Reception, given for us by the Seniors, was our first social affair. This was a delicious
taste of life in high school, except we were being used as entertainment, as many of us ruefully remem-
ber. Then we gave a Thanksgiving dance, our first source of income for the treasury. A spring dance
was held in April and was as successful as that at Thanksgiving.
Now the prospective sophomores want to thank our homeroom teachers, Mrs. Thomas and Mr. Simm,
for the help they gave us during our freshman year. Their guidance and encouragement will lead us to
rich, full lives in high school and the years to come.

Through the many hours of hard work put in by our editor-in-chief, Bing Munroe, and his staff, we
hope to have contributed to a few spicy additions to make our yearbook a special and sentimental re-
minder of the happy struggle through our high school career.

Teddy O'Brien, Pearl Adams, Kathy Walsh, Will Samson, Stan Gromelski, Marty Morrey, Joe Kosior,

We are especially grateful to our typists Nancy Dufresne, Martha Morrey, Joan Robbins, Pat Morrey,

Without the aid of our cameraman Dave Healy, the yearbook would definitely be incomplete. In
addition to all these seniors we wish to express thanks to all those other students who cheerfully co-
operated in helping to edit our yearbook.
The combined time, talents, and efforts of all have given us much satisfaction. We hope everyone
is as happy with the end results as we are.

The Pro Merito Society is an organization whose aims are to encourage the educational life of its
members in secondary schools of New England, to instill a love of learning, and to train its members to
recognize and accept personal responsibilities for leadership in society. The organization was founded
in 1917 by a group of western Massachusetts high schools. Williamsburg High School has been a mem-
ber of this organization since its foundation and many of our most distinguished graduates have been
members. Eligibility for student membership is achieved if a student has earned a minimum average
of 85% in scholastic grades. At our honors assembly on Feb. 18 Mr. Branch, faculty advisor of the Pro
Merito Society, administered the oath and welcomed the following outstanding students to membership:
Susan Clark, Donna Hurd, Lucinda Lyman, Helen Symons. Daniel Dunlevy, Joel Howes, Charles Kellogg,

This year the Library Club has been quite inactive due to the declining membership of the club
and also the busy schedule of other activities. Last year's officers are guiding us this year- -President
Bing Munroe; Vice-President Billy Munroe; Secretary Pearl Adams; and Treasurer Jean Breguet.
Other current members are Helen Symons and Cecil Thomas. Under the skillful supervision of Mrs.
Margaret Halberstadt, the members of the club keep the library neat and in order and we also cata-
logue many new books. We sincerely hope that next year more interest will be shown in this club
and membership will increase considerably.

The Press Club, under the supervision of Mrs. McKusick, visits once a week. In October Mrs. Eve-
ron Pollen, a writer for the DAILY HAMPSHIRE GAZETTE, gave the Press Club members a talk about
writing feature articles for the newspaper. She gave us ideas for subjects and urged us to take ad-
vantage of every opportunity to write.
Doreen Albert and James Outhuse are in charge of the Press Club scrapbook in which newspaper
clippings of school affairs are kept.
Articles about school happenings are being written for the Sunday SPRINGFIELD REPUBLICAN which
will be published in the section called "Spotlight on Youth." This gives us the opportunity to join with
other schools to make Williamsburg High School known in this area.
The students of Williamsburg High School showed their dramatic talents by staging three successful
plays under the direction of Mrs. Halberstadt, Mr. McGregor, and Mr. Roger.
"TheTrysting Place," written by Booth Tarkington, was ably presented by John Munroe, James Out-
huse, Bill Munroe, Jean Brequet, Linda Lavalle, and Alica DeNood. Jimmy Outhuse kept everyone
laughing as he, concealed behind the sofa, moved back and forth across the stage to hear the love making
between Bing Munroe and Jeanie Brequet, who did a fine job of impersonating people much older than
"The Life of the Party," by Donald Payton, and directed by Mr. McGregor, was hilarious and very
finely done by a talented cast. This cast was comprised of Dick Thomas, Gary Moore, Bob Hutchins, Skip
Foster, Roger Bisbee, David Kenny, Barbra Pollen, Jackie Hillenbrand, Lynne Myers, Brenda Jorgenson,
Kathy Walsh, and Barbra Mollison. The players, especially those backstage, made it seem to the audi-
ence that they were having a fine party even though a major catastrophe occurred in the social life of
one teen-age girl.
The last play was "The House Next Door," a spine-tingling mystery, written by LeRoma Rose. The
actors kept everyone wondering what was going to happen next. Richie Tetrault, the beatnik, was "like
koochieville. " The cast of Bruce Mack, David Healy, Richard Tetrault, Sue Senecal, Kathy Mollison,
Pearl Adams, Mary Richardson, and Helen Symons was under direction of Mr. Roger.
The Latin students certainly proved that Latin is not a dead language on Saturday, March 12, in the
A. T. Dunphy cafeteria, which was appropriately decorated for the occasion. This banquet, presented by
the second year students under direction of Mrs. McKusick, was carried out in true Roman form. Cecil
Thomas introduced the guests by their Latin names, and Andy Burr read the welcoming address. The
meal was served in three courses by the freshman slaves. Everyone dressed in togas reclined on mats in
authentic Latin style. After the meal a sacrifice was held in honor of Bacchus, god of wine, from a
script written by Ann Hathaway and Kathy Morin. The tables were then pushed to the center and the
cafeteria became the Circus Maximus. The first event was the Chariot races in which the drivers were
freshman girls who sat in the boxes and were pulled, or as it turned out, dragged around the course by
the horses, freshman boys. Another event was a gladiatorial combat refereed by none other than Digo
Digere Digi Graves, alias Mr. Tonet. The final event was the foot races. Some of those girls could
really give the boys on the track team some competition. With the help of everyone it took no time
at all to transform the Circus Maximus back to the familiar school cafeteria. As the guests left, every-
one agreed it was a very successful affair which will not soon be forgotten.

INDIVIDUAL BASKETBALL SCORES
The Williamsburg High School basketball team experienced its poorest season in ten years,
winning only nine of twenty-two games. Having lost six varsity players by graduation, the team
lacked the experience necessary for a winning season. In addition, ineligibility, injuries, and
illness of key players caused further problems. However, the boys played good basketball for
the most part, but their inability to rebound offensively and their poor foul shooting resulted in
many hard- fought games being lost by only a few points.
For the third successive season, Williamsburg reached the finals of the Tri-State Small
Schools Tournament in Turners Falls and for the second successive season lost to Sanderson
Academy by a few points.
Captain Tim Moynahan, the team workhorse, Fran O'Donnell, the leading scorer and best re-
bounder, and front-line replacement Will Samson will be lost by graduation. It is hoped that
their positions will be filled as capably by an ever -improving group of varsity reserves and J. V.

The Williamsburg High School cross country team ran its consecutive win streak to six over a two-
year span by easily defeating Minnechaug Regional of Wilbraham and Amherst Regional High School.
The team was led in this effort by Dan Dunlevy, who remains undefeated. Charles Kellogg, and
Nick Warren, a newcomer to the squad. These boys were given a great deal of support by the steady
performances of Joel Howes and Robert Haskell.
It is hoped that enthusiasm for this new fall sport plus the experience gained will produce another
successful season next year as all members of the squad will return for further competition.

The 1959-60 season for our girls' team was a very successful one. We were unfortunate to lose one
of our games with Charlemont and both of our games with Northampton. However, the team kept up
their spirit and won all the other games ending with a record of eleven wins and three losses. It is be-
cause of Mrs. Kmit's fine coaching and their own "will to do their very best" that they tied with Charle-
mont for first place in the league. We are very proud of their success.
Since there are no members of the team that will be lost through graduation, we know "the Burgy
Maidens" will have another outstanding year ahead of them.
The J.V. team also deserves some credit, as their record this year consists of four wins and two
losses, an improvement over the previous year. With this kind of results, we won't have to worry about
having experienced girls for our future team.

BASKETBALL BANQUET 1960
The Tenth Annual Basketball Banquet was held in the Anne T.
Dunphy cafeteria on March 26, I960, with the usual capacity crowd.
After a delicious dinner served by the regular cafeteria helpers and
other interested townspeople, "Charlie Weaver," alias John Breguet,
entertained his audience with a letter from "Mamma," which told
tales --amusing and sometimes embarrassing ones- -about basketball
players, cheerleaders, teachers, and "The Demerit System." Mr.
Roger and Mr. Reddington spoke briefly commending the players.
Next came Mrs. Kmit, with the awards to the cheerleaders, girls'
basketball team, and managers. Then Mr. Tonet presented awards to
the boys' basketball team and its co-managers. The foul shooting
awards went to Ricky Graves and Fran O'Donnell. Girls' Basketball
co-captains Linda Beals and Kathy Mollison and boys' basketball
captain Tim Moynahan then presented Mrs. Kmit andMr. Tonet with
engraved silver trays from the teams' members. Mr. Tonets' serious
remarks and his jokes were appreciated by all, and everyone left
feeling it was a happy climax to the 1959-60 basketball season.
